|Springer Spaniel by Ron Krajewski|
No, that's not mine! This fabulous pet portrait, Springer Spaniel, is by Ron Krajewski, whose website I heartily suggest you visit when you're done here.
Speaking of which, we are expecting snow tonight and tomorrow, probably only 2-6 inches, but by the way the local Walmart is running out of cheap white bread, milk, and Velveeta, you'd think it'll be the Snowpocalypse of the Century. I have two questions:
- Why do people panic at the slightest hint of inclement weather these days?
- When they do, why do they buy the crappiest food on the shelves?
- Weather forecasts have become as tabloid as the news and people watch too much of it. They're addicted to drama because the media is tailored to raise adrenalin levels. Did you know adrenalin is addictive? This addiction turns people into sheeple. It's that simple.
- Sheeple have traded their rational sanity for mindless following. This is a real danger. When we're overstimulated our logic flies out the window, and when we're in a constant state of fight or flight, we're easier to control. I'm not a conspiracy theorist, but it wouldn't surprise me in the least if Walmart has cut a deal with the Weather Channel.
Anyway, enough of that. We're expecting snow and I'm happy as I can be about it. I love snow and I miss winter in Denver. As if the snow was foreseen, we set Saturday aside to put up the Christmas tree and decorations. Usually, we do this in the evening, but it seems to be more physically taxing every year so we'll be doing it during the day this time. We'll still have the hot drinks, mulled wine, and holiday nibbles, so if you live in the Stilly, feel free to drop in!
